Description Shiro Yamada 2004-12-24 03:17:52 UTC
Since samba 3.0.9, SWAT has been displaying pages in UTF-8.
However, when it tries to display parameter values in smb.conf,
it blankly copy them as they are (i.e. in unix charset instead of

SWAT should convert these parameter in UTF-8 before it generates
a page in HTML format.
